Concordia makes transferring law schools easy.
When you transfer to Concordia University School of Law, we’re with you every step of the way – starting with a dedicated admission professional to make your move as seamless as possible. Every incoming student is paired with a judge or attorney as a mentor to provide support. Transfer scholarships and a $5,000 per year service grant help keep costs affordable – and they’re guaranteed regardless of class standing or GPA. And since Idaho utilizes the Uniform Bar Examination, your score can be transferred to other participating states more easily, providing greater flexibility and mobility once you pass the bar.
Committed to your success.
You already know how difficult law school can be. That’s why we do our best to make the transfer process as easy as possible. Concordia University School of Law allows a maximum of 39 credits to transfer in from an ABA-approved law school towards your program of study. You must obtain a grade of “C” or better in any given class in order for the transfer of credit to be granted. Please note that you cannot transfer courses taken as pass/fail or other ungraded legal experiences.
Keeping law school affordable.
Average annual tuition for a full-time Concordia Law student is $19,000 – well below the national average for a private law school. Based on cumulative law school grade point average, merit scholarships for transfer students range from $3,000 to $12,000 per year – that’s in addition to the guaranteed annual service grant of $5,000. As a result, small class sizes, one-on-one attention, and externships in your field of interest are all within reach.

Looking for a change of scenery? Boise is a great place to visit – and go to school. Attending Concordia University School of Law as a visiting student is an easy way to discover all the benefits of living and learning in Boise. If you’re enrolled and in good standing at another law school, you can apply to be a visiting student at Concordia Law for up to one academic year. As a visiting student, you would be charged Concordia Law tuition rates during your time here, and you may be eligible for merit scholarship awards based on your prior law school performance and the number of credits you’re enrolled in at Concordia Law. At the end of your time as a visiting student, you would simply transfer the credits you earned at Concordia Law to your home law school.
Students interested in working in the Boise area after graduation from law school are especially encouraged to apply to visit during the summer to participate in Concordia Law’s highly regarded externship program.
To be considered for admission as a visiting student, you must provide the following documents:
- An application for admission to Concordia Law through the Law School Admission Council (select the Transfer/Visiting student application)
- A brief statement (cover letter) explaining the student’s reason for applying as a visitor
- A letter from the dean’s office at the student’s current law school granting approval to enroll at Concordia Law as a visiting student
- An official law school transcript
